The St. James FFA will host a labor and dessert auction on Wednesday, January 19, to raise funds for the upcoming contest season and this year’s FFA state convention trip. Local FFA students will be auctioned off during the event and will provide work for the highest bidder.
This year’s auction will take place at the St. James Community Hall in Nelson Hart Park beginning at 6:30 p.m. Community members, business owners, farmers, and others are invited to participate. Throughout the event, FFA member pairs will be “sold” to the highest bidder and will work eight hours in the spring, aiding with household chores, working on a farm, helping around a business, or other need.
The winning bidder will be able to select what activities the FFA members provide. Proceeds will directly aid the St. James FFA as they prepare for another season of busy activities.
